Some young blonde walked past on her way somewhere, and one of the protesting fools grabbed her arm and yelled "if you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem". She pulled her arm loose and slapped him as hard as she...

Re: A Brand New Winchester Calibre At Shot Show

I don't see anything which stands out to me. I have a .44 mag Ruger semi auto which works incredibly well, and I can load it heavy for whatever I need. It works best with near maximum loads and hits like it should without a lot of recoil. That new cartridge doesn't seem to have anything I need.
